Indore, June 2, 2017: A journalist in Madhya Pradesh’s Pipliya Mandi was shot dead allegedly by the liquor Mafia at his office in a busy market on Wednesday evening.

As per initial reports, 42-years-old, Kamlesh Jain, who was working for an Indore-based daily, was shot shot twice at close range by two motorcycle-borne assailants who fled away after committing crime.

This comes days after the journalist reportedly tipped off the police about some local dhaba owners who were selling alcohol illegally.

He was rushed to the district headquarters hospital at Mandsaur, nearly 15 km away, where doctors declared him brought dead.

His family members suspect hand of local bootleggers in the murder. According to them, the victim had an argument with some people involved in illegal liquor business in the locality four days back.

The journalist murder evoked a protest, following which Deputy Inspector General of Police Avinash Sharma rushed to the spot and said that the suspects had been identified and they will be apprehended soon.

He denied that Kamlesh had given an application to the police alleging a threat to life. “We are aware of the altercation at the railway crossing, and a Dial-100 team had reached the spot after receiving call from Kamlesh, but the other party had left the spot by then,” he said.

Meanwhile, Pipliyamandi town in-charge Anil Singh Thakur did not confirm the motive and said multiple angles were under investigation.
